The Cosmetic Industry Summit: Breaking Barriers in Africa is being launched for the first time in South Africa and is organised by the Cosmetic toiletry & Fragrance Association of South Africa (CTFA) on behalf of the South African Cosmetic industry. The Summit involves a partnership with the Industrial Development Corporation of South Africa (IDC) and support from the Department of Trade and Industry (Dti).
Born out of concern for the various technical barriers to trade in the African continent, the Cosmetic Industry Summit: Breaking Barriers in Africa brings together leaders from business and government and other interested parties to deliberate on ways to stimulate ‘harmonisation’ across the continent to ease trade within the African continent. Both local and international presenters have been invited to present on the regulatory framework in various countries in Africa, trade relations, and global best practice in the cosmetic and personal care industry.
The summit is expected to be attended by delegates both from South Africa and from countries across Africa. The line-up includes both international and speakers from African continents.
